Here is our neighbor and her tiny daughter playing upon our frozen lake this morning. 

Erica brings her little girl outside on most days for fresh air and always I'm wooshed back 28 years to a young Naomi and myself outside in the snow. I smile and am grateful I knew days like those and they'll always live inside my heart.

It's just as Laura Ingalls Wilder said: "They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago."


"But if you humble yourself, you will be honored..." ... Matthew 23:12
